Babies need a lot of comforting. Though they are capable of doing some things for themselves, sometimes they prefer to have their caretakers do it for them.

It helps them to feel safe and loved. Like the panda baby in iPanda’s video.

The panda baby was sitting in a puddle splashing around. And she rubbed her face with the water.

But the baby refused to get back in the water and finish bathing herself.

Why? She wanted her nanny to do.

She decided to step out of the puddle toward her nanny.

But her nanny was really trying to get her to do it herself.

So, she just kept petting the little baby hoping that she would catch on.

And as soon as she walked away, the baby bear started to splash some water on herself.

This little baby was so adorable that more than 9.5 million people watched it.

“My reputation of being a serious and tough-hearted man is in serious jeopardy after finding this video incredibly adorable,” wrote one commenter on Facebook.

“You gotta love this caretaker, who really is more of a mama. These wonderful folks have a great level of empathy. These sweet pandas are so loved,” said another.

Giant panda babies need a lot of care from the moment they are born.

First of all, they are basically ejected from their mother’s bodies since the birth canal of a panda is very narrow.

They are born extremely tiny at just 3.5 ounces. They are also born blind and without any fur. They are so weak when they are born that they can’t even stand until they are 3-months-old.

But no one knows exactly why they are born so vulnerable.

“Some researchers suspect that this oddity has to do with hibernation: At some point, bears started cutting short their pregnancies to avoid gestating while they hibernate, and now that trait is baked into every bear species — even pandas, which don’t hibernate,” Live Science explains. “That theory has a big problem though, the authors of the new paper found: Pandas are born exceptionally tiny and underdeveloped, even for bears. And other bears, including species that do hibernate, are born with robust, mature skeletons.”

While the baby panda in the video below wasn’t cute that small, it was still needed a lot of care.

This panda had plush black and white fur and was probably about waist high on an adult if it stood up straight.

She also had a good amount of weight on her. She definitely wasn’t anywhere near 3.5 pounds.

And she was a lot cuter than the weird-looking pink shriveled newborn pandas.

“The only nicest naively pure-hearted creatures in the planet!” wrote one YouTuber.

“I know for a fact that the nanny was waiting her whole life for the panda to ask her to bathe her. Wish approved Nanny. Wish approved! Peace now,” said another.

Check out all the cuteness in the video below.
